    Pros

    I really enjoy helping people and CNM lets me do that.

    Cons

    I don't like being treated like a toddler and mircomanged by management. It's as if they don't trust their own training.

    Pros

    They try hard to be great. Staff below the Administration and Dean level are all really great people.

    Cons

    Micromanaging executives, back stabbing administrators. They do not value their employees and enjoy watching the infighting. Toxic environment.

    Advice to Management

    Retire.

    I have been working at Central New Mexico Community College full-time

    Pros

    Great environment to work in.
    The college pushes for innovation by introducing things like Salesforce and Blockchain development.

    Cons

    Pay could be better.
    People can be protective of their department and have a specific way of doing things that the college may be moving away from doing.

    Advice to Management

    Don't really have any. This is by far the best place I've ever worked!

    I have been working at Central New Mexico Community College full-time

    Pros

    There are some faculty and staff who really care about doing a good job and helping students.

    Cons

    Management is short-sighted and does not think plans through before having them executed nor do they consult with anyone who has knowledge or experience of the subject being discussed. Less experienced or qualified people are often promoted over others. The work culture is very petty, hierarchical, and unnecessarily competitive.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the best employees by promoting them or at least protecting them from the harsh environment. Realize that there are some employees who are qualified, motivated, and ambitious, and other who are just there to collect their paychecks, protect their jobs like a dog with a bone, and retire.

    I worked at Central New Mexico Community College part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I have worked in Higher Ed for 30 years. I found CNM to be friendly, organized and a cooperative work place. The benefits are good. Paid time off , insurance benefits and other perks were nice.I found it to be a quality place to work. There are many opportunities for career growth. I worked under multiple managers in one department and found all to be reasonable and professional.

    Cons

    The biggest problem I had was with no paid time off for part time people during the Winter break and you could not use annual leave during that time either.

    Advice to Management

    Be more flexible about how employees can use their time off. The time off is their benefit.

    I worked at Central New Mexico Community College full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    good health benefits, relaxed culture

    Cons

    strange departmental issues with communication

    Advice to Management

    Don't hire people who are outside the scope of their knowledge/experience. I did find that the company would hire less-qualified, less-educated people for positions over other candidates who held masters degrees. I found that it was easy for those in the company to offer preferential treatment to people they were friends with. In my case, my manager was someone who wasn't even formally trained/educated in the department we worked in. She managed to be grandfathered in during a transitional period at the institution. It was very frustrating to managed by someone in a field that I have more experience/education in. In another instance, they hired someone who didn't even have an US-accredited undergraduate degree, but they gave her the job out of many others with masters degrees in the specific field. I noticed many other instances like this. Management should definitely focus more on that, especially considering how hard it is to get a job there.
